New Relationship Manager Position

In an effort to continue expanding, enhancing, and perpetuating youth shooting sports activities, the MidwayUSA Foundation has appointed John Linquist to the new position of Relationship Manager. In his new role, John will pursue opportunities for industry-leading businesses to join MidwayUSA Foundation in sustaining and growing youth shooting sports. With over 14 years in the outdoor industry, John’s experience, combined with his passion for shooting and hunting, makes him the perfect candidate. John will oversee the Foundation’s new Giving Opportunites program. This program allows individuals and organizations with a passion for youth shooting sports the chance to leave a legacy through planned giving and estate planning, as well as offering other non-traditional ways to give.

“I’m grateful to be a part of the MidwayUSA Foundation and am incredibly proud of what this Foundation does for youth shooting sports. Its purpose and mission have positively impacted all of us within the shooting sports community and beyond. Through that effort, today’s youth have more shooting sports opportunities available than any other time in American history. In my new role, I’m looking forward to building relationships with individuals and industry leaders. Whether companies want to elevate their brand visibility or individuals need to plan their personal estate, I can help ensure every single donation to the MidwayUSA Foundation leaves a legacy and provides long term stability for youth shooting sports…forever.” – John Linquist, Relationship Manager
